This made me smile at first. I thought you were trying to be sentimental and emotionally moving. Instead it appears to be a cruel joke at Toad's expense, lol. Guess the heart should have tipped me off. Ah well, still a little funny. The art's nice to look at too. Keep up the good work.
I wouldn't say its a cruel joke, at least thats not what I had in mind when I drew this. I just thought the scenario where Mario acknowledges the importance of Toad's life and saving him was worth drawing, like... normally people think "Oh HAHA fuck you toad, nintendo trolling me." but.. idk, what would a decent human being say to this little guy that is in a way making it seem like his life isn't worth saving... ugh idk, now I AM thinking too hard about it lol
Alright, maybe I misjudged your intent then. I'm not saying they should be a couple or anything (as a matter of fact that would be a rather unsettling image...) but yeah, I found it really touching that Mario was saving Toad for the purpose of saving Toad. It gave me the warm fuzzies and restored my faith in humanity. But after reading your comments and other people's comments and such I got the vibe that you weren't trying to make a statement about the importance of life or even the unspoken friendship between Mario and Toad, it was just a chance to say "HAH, LOOK AT FAGGY TOAD GAYIN' IT UP WITH MARIO!" I apologize if I was wrong.
